Welcome to Dystopia Rising

 We’re so excited to welcome you to the end of the world! Dystopia Rising is a Live Action Role-Play, granting a glimpse into the Apocalypse. Our community brings together people from LARP, tabletop, cosplay, airsoft, video gaming, and more. You leave yourself at the in woods and take on life as a character you've created, experiencing a brand new world. You'll meet people from near and far, people who live down the street, people who live on the other side of the planet; Dystopia Rising is spreading all over! Navigate the fallen world around you with other characters, take part in intense, incredible scenes, and maybe learn some things about yourself along the way.

This is about you. Your survival. Your heroism.

Your Story.



First of all, don't worry about being new.  Everyone had a first event. Our community and team members are patient and ready to lend a helping hand.

Dystopia Rising, or “DR” as our fans usually call it, is a role playing game and a multimedia experience.  DR is a tabletop game where you get a group of friends together for a shared story telling experience.  DR is also a series of novels that you can read and enjoy.  If you are interested in either of these, you can find more information about the tabletop game and the novel series by following the Genre Information link, or, by going to the parent publication company’s website: Eschaton Media.  Beyond those two basic ways to enjoy Dystopia Rising, there is one last and most famous way: Dystopia Rising is also a weekend-long networked LARP.

Dystopia Rising is a post-apocalypse survival scenario where you will come to reside in one of the settlements of survivors for a weekend.  During that weekend you will get to do amazing things. Experience and influence an economy, save the life of a total stranger, vanquish the undead, (boffer) fight, and even be the villian. It's a good way to enjoy stepping away from the modern day.  

Because this is a Networked game, you will be able to take your character from your local game to other games.  Our official games all follow the same guidelines and use our centralized character database software to keep track of your character’s growth no matter which game you are visiting.  So if you find yourself traveling near or far from your own home game, you can bring your character to a local Dystopia Rising game and meet thousands of friends you never knew you had.
